Gothic

The little girl was wide open, her doors were literally banging on their hinges.

“I have a lipstick on a necklace!!” she gloated, trying desperately to get The Rooster’s attention.

Roo, from her truly vibrant position in the spa chair, looked at her sideways but only briefly.

She was enjoying the rare luxury of a mani/pedi in a massage chair.

She chose a green so dark it may as well have been black.

I sat next to her marveling at her ability to pull off the Gothic look, something I am unable to do.

“I have a lipstick on a necklace!!” the other little girl in the nail salon repeated.

Roo flopped her head in the other little girl’s direction, shrugged her shoulders and nonchalantly said,

“I can spell.”

Hopefully she will always prefer brains over beauty.

The boys better watch out! If she's that quick with a comeback, once they take notice and start strutting around, their little hearts are going to get pummeled. And maybe that's a good thing for you!

She's too ordinary of her kind to admit it.
